Welcome

Wyvern is the largest gliding club within the Army Gliding Association and provides gliding as a recognized sport and approved Adventurous Training activity to all Servicemen, retired servicemen and MoD civilians and by exception other civilians can be invited to join. It will also provide air experience flights for all those interested in finding out about the thrill of gliding. All instruction is carried out by BGA (British Gliding Association) Instructors.

Fleet

Army Gliding Club (Wyvern) can boast one of the best fleets of any club in the South West, with a full range of aircraft available for our members to take from ab-initio through solo to cross country and competition flying.

Courses

AGC(W) runs four 6 – day intensive gliding courses from April through to September and which are open to serving Service personnel, and a separate 5-day Basic Course for prospective civilian members. These are extremely good value for money and offer student pilots the opportunity to receive intensive training in the 5 days, with the potential to fly solo for some candidates.
